Going Abroad As Told By “Mean Girls”

If you’re trying to go abroad in the future, we salute you. If you’re reading this abroad right now, we’re a little jealous of you. And if you’re just sitting and dreaming of foreign lands, we’re in the same boat. Regardless of where you’re at, we can all laugh at the good and bad awkward moments that people come across in the process of being abroad. See the struggles as told by our favorite ladies, Gretchen, Regina, Cady and that girl who “doesn’t even go here.”

1. Trying not to pack every piece of clothing you own, but inevitably having suitcase that exceeds the weight limit

That's just like the rules of feminism

2. Even just two hours on an airplane calls for a spray of perfume, but no amount of body spray will help after ten hours of traveling
 You smell like a baby prostitute
 3. Navigating the language barrier in a foreign country is frustrating, intimidating, and funny


4. It doesn’t take more than a few hours in your new country to realize that your diet is officially over

Is butter a carb

5. Trying every unknown appetizer, entrée, and dessert you lay your eyes on

The limit does not exist

6. The drinking age no longer applies to you in your foreign country, so naturally you order an alcoholic beverage with every meal

Is there alcohol in this

7. Surprise and confusion all occur when encountering the cultural difference of your new country

This is the fertility vase

8. When you experience your first wave of homesickness
I just have a lot of feelings
9. Going to the grocery for the first time and not being able to decipher any of the food labels

Its in swedish

10. Buying presents for all your friends and family back home to prove that you didn’t forget about them
